Gnarly lines, deep snow, and serious weather require the big-time protection of a shell like the Outdoor Research White Room Men's Jacket. Simple but not minimal and rugged but not heavy, the White Room is designed to handle long approaches, steep climbs, and burly descents without a second thought. Naturally, it starts with its waterproof and breathable three-layer Gore-Tex membrane. It's laminated to a polyester and spandex shell for stretch and freedom of movement, and topped off with articulated elbows and a helmet-compatible hood to keep you moving easily on the way up and the way down. If you're working hard to put in the vert, you can pop open the extra-long CrossFlo vents for some cooling airflow, and when you get to the top and start to cool off, zip them back up, stick your skins in the large drop-in chest pocket, snap down the removable and adjustable powder skirt, and get ready to send it. The White Room's fully taped seams, hook-and-loop cuffs, and drawcord hem have you covered when the skies open up and the snow starts to come down, and the integrated Recco reflector provides a little backup in case of an in-bounds emergency. There are other resort-friendy features, too, like a sleeve pocket for your ski pass and a chest media pocket that makes it easy to keep the tunes rolling from the first bell to the last.
